If anything, Lids is going to get upset about this and hang 'em up. He is in the longest injury stint of his career and his teammates drop like flies every march. I don't forsee him sticking around to see it happen again.

Thank goodness Lidstrom doesn't think like you.

This is a joke right?

Are we gonna have a MacDonald/Conklin tandem heading into the playoffs?


If Howard was out for the season I'd just say tank this s*** and get a good pick.

If the Wings can't secure home ice advantage for at least one round of the playoffs s*** is going to be pretty rough.

tanking would be great for any other team. but we have 20 years of consecutive playoffs. other teams would love to see the wings stoop to their level to rejuvenate their lineup. even if howard was gone for the playoffs id still want to make the playoffs.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Out of all the playoff teams we're by far the most banged up team, and it's not funny

If we were able to use an emergency call up to protect Conks from waivers, why the f*** did we not? No point in calling him up if you ask me. Might as well have called up Pearce and McCollum and went with them.

With all the injuries, someone should call Osgood and Rafalski to know how they are feeling.

Don't be silly. MacDonald is hurt. It's be Conklin/Pearce

I don't care how well Conks is playing in the minors, he in front of our healthy roster this year, sucked. Tomorrow isn't going to be pretty, this is hell. 3 years in a row of half the team going down with injuries at certain points of the season. This season had the most promise of the last 3, but we may now finish in 6th in the west. f*** the "hockey gods", they kick us in the nads every year with these injuries <_<

They should put Mrazek in and see what he can do. I know he's young, but he's the team's best goalie prospect. Giving him a small taste of NHL action would let him know what level he needs to reach. It worked pretty well for Howard during a similar injury crisis back in 2005.

We're getting too close to playoffs for this garbage. Just a couple of weeks left and the Wings need to get healthy fast. This will teach them to coast, I guess, eh? Now there's no time to make up lost ground and it'll be harder than ever to put together some wins when they need them most. Wouldn't be in this position had they kept playing hard the last month.

"Coasting" or what you might perceive as lack of effort does not necessarily, and likely doesn't, equal getting injured.

I'm just as frustrated as you and everybody else here with the roster situation but this simply isn't true.

And the hits just keep on coming.

I predict Babs will be out next week with a massive headache and Hudler will go down with a toe injury. :P

Scary and unrealistic thought but kinda funny in a way:

For s***s and giggles, someone claims Ty Conklin off waivers so that we have to play a Pearce-McCollum tandem or something...
